Firstly, I want to thank Balaka for sharing these stories with us and also want to congratulate her on publishing this beautiful book. In this review, I will share my personal opinion as a book buff or a voracious reader.

When I started reading these stories on A2Z challenge, I immediately felt connected with them. There are two reasons behind this connection, First is they are simple yet beautifully written short stories and second is, all the characters from the first story till the last one are not fictional. All of them are real people and we all have met these people at some point in our lives. This book will take you to emotional ride as it has all the RASas- beauty, humour, anger, compassion, pain, bravery, love, tranquillity, horror, and romance. While reading this book, please keep tissue paper ready as tears will come out of your eyes to be the part of this beautiful memoir.

In the end, I can only say that this book is worth a collection. I request the author to write more and not to keep us waiting for her second book.

    Balaka’s Golden Rainbow is a very earnest book full of stories and anecdotes that will incite an emotional response in the readers. I read the stories during the AtoZ challenge and was enthralled by them. A good book and a good review.
